Abiword installation issues (resolved)

Fri Jun 08, 2012 8:32 pm

I'm using Debian6 19.04 and have happily set up Chromium and Gimp through the usual sudo apt-get install xxxxx commands.

I'm now trying to install Abiword but despite it reporting success downloading and installing I cannot find it integrated into the LXDE unlike Chromium and Gimp. (Gimp was installed after Abiword)

I have tried removing and reinstalling several times (sudo apt-get install abiword-common) and always no errors and it appears to be fine - just no integration with LXDE.

Any ideas where I might be going wrong?

(4Gb SD card - 1.9 free, have run upgrade successfully, wifi installed fine)

I'm having exactly the same problem. Abiword is installed and present in the file system, but there's no sign of it in LXDE. Help!

Problem solved!

My mistake was to do sudo apt-get install abiword-common (I read to do this somewhere on the Raspi site). I should have done:
sudo apt-get install abiword

Everything now works.

Thanks JollyRoger, same mistake here and it seems the incorrect advice to use abiword-common rather than just Abiword has appeared in a few places.

Very happy to have a nice small footprint wordprocessor.

sudo apt-get install abiword worked for me too.

When I try to install with sudo apt-get install abiword I get:

Err http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ wheezy/main libtelepathy-glib0 armhf 0.18.1-2
404 Not Found
Failed to fetch http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/rasp ... _armhf.deb 404 Not Found

Any advice?

Yes, don't ask the same question in two different places!

You have already started a thread at http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 26&t=15510 and received a reply, which will hopefully help you.
